    I'm not sympathetic to this lawsuit and if he is serious will likely pay his own court costs when it's tossed out.
    " I am acting in order to send a message to the UCI and its senior office bearers that gross mismanagement and betrayal of trust is completely unacceptable."
    I reckon after hearing this any judge will laugh once and send Skinz a bill.
    *Note this is the one and only ____ ________ thread that will be allowed this week so pile on.

    But Ty just re-implicated Bjarne on Swiss tv. Surely he's going to fire back. Danggit.

    Wow, slow start for an LA thread.

    Is the mob waiting for the big dogs to tell them their opinion?

    Weak case.

    LA will get it from other angles, like SCA.

    The UCI has Kimmage's counter-suit, which should be strong. If UCI settles or loses, floodgates open.

    This is totally predictable. I am sure _____ _________ will followup with his own civil suit when several of the implicated are found not guilty. Legal proceedings are not about guilt, they are about laws and presentation. The fact that he wasn't criminally charged is a huge piece of this picture. If they can't get a legal conviction, the rest is suspect. ( I am sure he is guilty, but the selective nature of the investigations decreases credibility of the UCI and USADA.)

    The story goes that the Feds felt good about their case. Most of the investigators were shocked that it got closed down (on a Friday afternoon before the Super Bowl, no less).

    That being said, this case would seem to be weak and just an attempt at publicity. I didn't think this lawsuit was really about "you know who", but rather a public
    indictment of the UCI.

    Publicity stunt.

    OT but - what's happening with people like Allen Lim, Chris Carmichael, Jim Oschowicz and the countless others who are flying under the radar on all this business? I've read some headlines but there's not much. So many people built their reputations on the back of the doping cyclists and there is no way they can play dumb (IMO).

    this goof needs to spend the legal costs on marketing- when i think of SKINS i think of TGIFriday's, not cycling gear.
    he makes his nut with triathletes anyway.
    stoopid move.

    the real court cases is PK and JB's pending trials.
    as to the cast of characters mentioned above-
    CC- was a pass thru.
    AL- isn't outta the woods, yet. his turn comes when FLandis reloads.
    Jimmy- will get burned by JB's trial and esp if _____ _________ actually testifies.
    "make the break"

    When street dope kills addicts everyone wants it and the price goes up or so I hear on The Wire.

    Someone needs to ask Levi if Floyd was lying when he said Lim blood bagged them both.

    I only post this because I thought the target was correct. I'm not a lawyer. It's the UCI, not Lance.

    I think we're done here. We don't need a new thread with a bare link for every news story on this topic.

    Everyone who posted here - as penance now go look at the Spooky thread where today Mickey posted some sweet pics and dropped some knowledge.
